of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a

. for individual retirement accounts, i.r.a.'s, under the tax code. today retirees are more likely to rely on 401k's and i.r.a.'s and are less likely to have defined benefit plans from their employers. at the same time, the natural products have become increasingly complex. because the rules governing the rights of investors and the responsibilities of advisors are more than 35 years old, d.o.l. is attempting to modernize these rules and -- in order to reflect the changing nature of the retirement marketplace. given these realities it is necessary for the department to make sure that the professionals offering retirement advice have a duty to put their clients' interests first before their own or at very least tell their customers that they may be conflicting. at the same time the s.e.c. is considering moving forward on a rule making that would impose a uniform fiduciary standard of conduct for broker dealers and investment advisors, consistent with the dodd-frank act. this would ensure that whatever the business model, if an individual is providing personalized investment advice out securities to
or medicaid reform even tax reform. those things are not going to happen for the reasons we just described. getting a number to fund through 2014 and avoiding kind of the harsh realities of sequestration would be good goals according to republicans and even some democrats. >> you know, ryan, i kind of think getting rid of sequestration, even if it means no revenue, might be a good deal. the assumption has always been republicans would be hurt so badly by defense cuts we can extract something. rand paul doesn't care about the defense cuts. why don't we jettison some of the crap, speaking about defense cuts. he wants more defense cuts. the idea this is somehow leveraged is maybe not that accurate. if you can unwind sequestration or put in a better bargain, if you will, and not get revenue, it still might be a good deal for democrats at this point. >> not a good bargain for the tea party. if you want to look for a sign of how much less power the tea party has now, look at what tom cole said, both sides won. he said more revenue, higher taxes, if they can do away with sequester, which is more
campaign explained dumping joe biden and reed got the idea reid didn't pay income tax and more. the book doesn't come out until next week but jonathan martin has all the incite details and joins us now. it's fascinating on your reporting in this. how serious were they looking into having hillary clinton be the vice president? >> it was serious, not that it was intentionally polled and focused grouped. campaigns don't spend the money unless they are seriously exploring something. it was only known but about a half dozen of the top obama senior advisors, people like david axle rod and most notably the chief of staff william daily, then chief of staff who became close to joe biden. they are similar age, similar background. >> similar background. you talked to him? >> i talked hto him on the phon and he confirmed saying he thought it was his due diligence as chief of staff to explain the possibility of what she would mean for obama in 201. they concluded she wouldn't add a substantial effect, she would help but not enough to dump biden. >> so a bump but not big enough to justify the whole dr

it to humpty-dumpty. more importantly, he says he would now consider supporting a delay of the tax penalties in the law's individual mandate. second, obama care suffered a loss in court today. the d.c. federal peers court struck down the birth control mandate in the law. the case is now expected to go to the supreme court. and this is the number, the number that still resonates across america. tonight six, six only six people successfully enrolled in an obama care health exchange plan on day one of the roll-out. six. let's talk about all this. we welcome for the first time dorian warren, columbia university associate professor and roosevelt institute fellow. robert traynham, former bush/cheney senior adviser and georgetown university assistant dean. and jimmy kemp, president and founder of the jack kemp foundation. welcome, everybody. bob traynham, one of the things that occurs to me today with all that went on, the cancellations and the lack of grandfathering, and it was one drama after another, sebelius gave a terrible performance and so forth, and people realize they're not going to be ab
, taxpayer subsidies of workers who work at walmart, they see tax payers filling the gap of low wagers. i asked him about this report from the committee, estimating 300 worker, walmart supercenter in wisconsin for example, would likely cause taxpayers $904,000 a year in employee -- in taxpayer subsidies, medicaid, welfare benefits, other benefits, and this is what he said. >> we are no different than any other retailer in america. we provide opportunities for people to join the company and to grow. the level of subsidy that exists is an issue that the, you know, the government decides. >> he also wanted to point out and did a couple times in the interview that those critics are influenced by pro union groups, you know, who want to unionize walmarts. he said, we provide a good entry level job. they are the biggest player. there's nobody bigger than walmart. what walmart does really, really matters. what they're trying to say, amidst all this discussion about are they not paying enough, they're trying to show they do promote people and they are a place to work where you do have some mobilit
it in the fiscal cliff bill when they extended permanently $4 trillion of tax cuts for the upper part of the households in america. low income people weren't going to be impacted anyway, we never should have extended those taxes. you can't get them back now. it's permanent. and so there's no revenue except trivial loophole closing which will never happen because the lobbies dominate the process. and then finally, if i could just say, president obama stuck his toe in the water on entitlement reform, but it was the wrong toe. he said, you know, chain cpi. well, that means the person on minimum benefits is going to get hit if they had no other income. $9,000 a year, they're going to get hit. whereas a retired in florida living on a golf course getting $50,000 a year on social security and medicare is going to barely feel the nick. there should be means testing where you take the savings out of the top. so what we have is a total stalemate. we're going to do nothing on entitlements. they're going to try to raise -- >> so your forecast from your answer is you think we're going to be doing
to delay the mandate tax. >> this has got to be delayed. >> there its no way to fix the monstrosity. >> nobody. ♪ >>> in 1985, the democratic governor of new york, mario cuomo attacked economic policies of ronald reagan in a speech he delivered at yale. governor cuomo said the reagan re-election campaign was filled with oversimplification and reagan policies if enacted would be harsher. that led governor cuomo to say perhaps the most memorable line of any speech. he said we campaign in poetry. but when we are elected we are forced to govern in prose. tonight, president obama stands accused of campaigning in poetry when he was campaigning to passion the affordable care act. >> if you look your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> if you have health insurance. nothing in the plan will require you to change what you have. >> when president obama was campaigning for re-election the affordable care act had not been fully implemented and said this. if you are one of more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep y
the government pays me back, subsidizes it through my taxes. so what am i going to do? i'm going to let you pay for it 'cause i'm guaranteed to get it. >> you have to be eligible. you can't lie. if you're eligible or not eligible. - >> juan, they took away the requirement to have a child. you used to be eligible for medicaid.ow y now anyone can get it. itib costs nothing! the states that you're eligible to took that medicaid money, millions will be enrolling and we're on the hooke dana, jay carney also said the a reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees is solely because of the web site. here is carney. >> let me just tell you now, ont november 1, we don't expectmber those numbers to be very high'te and we never did.ry but they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we've had with the web site. >> that's interesting. he says they never did know thah becausee earlier in the week, te answer was that the president had no idea that the web site was not going to work. they constantly try have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised that the experts seemed so surpri
used to work for have sold in the past. in fact, the majority of them will qualify for tax credits or subsidies to bring the cost down. so they will be paying less for better coverage. >> quickly, did the administration over-promise when they said repeatedly if you like your plan you can keep it? >> well, it was unfortunate language. because the president nor congress in this law can really control the insurance companies that well, that effectively. they control the health care system in many ways. they're able to get away with this, and they are, as we're seeing. >> right, it was a promise that they're seeing they could not themselves keep. wendell potter, thank you very much. >>> all right, congressman barney frank's name was brought up, cited as the authority, the man supporting the bill. but that is not exactly the case. he will be here to react coming up next. >>> a big day for congress today, back in the swing of things, back to work. house of representatives holding one of its first floor votes since the government shutdown ended two weeks ago. and what did they vote on? th
